|Galaxy's access control solution improves organisational security and operational efficiency
Galaxy Control Systems’ exhibit at ASIS 2016 (booth # 2527) is proving why they are a leading provider of integrated access control and security solutions. From mobile apps that provide users with greater control to advanced port filtering that helps busy networks manage the growing surge of traffic; and from traditional thick client to web-based thin client operation, their System Galaxy access control solution is designed to improve both organisational security and operational efficiency, benefiting organizations and users alike.
“System Galaxy, with its advanced capabilities, enables true control and management for improved security and efficiencies across the organisation,” said Robert Laughlin, President, Galaxy Control Systems. “These strengths make it a key foundation in enabling our customers to support their security objectives.”
Display highlights include:
The DoorPoint mobile app provides authorised security personnel with the ability to manage a facility’s doors to enhance security. Through the app, users can remotely lock, unlock and pulse doors, view door status and view activity report data from the System Galaxy access control software. In an emergency situation, the app also allows security personnel to activate and reset crisis modes if necessary and to view current crisis mode status.
Users can search for cardholders
by name, department or other
data fields, further enhancing the
efficiency and effectiveness of their
access control software
PersonPoint mobile app allows authorised users to activate and de-activate cardholders remotely, with the added benefit of viewing e-mail activity reports provided by System Galaxy. Users can search for cardholders by name, department or other data fields, further enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of their access control software.
Both DoorPoint and PersonPoint apps are available for download at Android and Apple stores.
The new Advanced Port Filtering feature will also be featured. Because there is a media access control address (also known as a MAC address) for every wi-fi-enabled device on the network, the advent of the Internet of Things and the rapid growth of connected devices is causing a tremendous surge to the amount of traffic that is seen by the network. The new Advanced Port Filtering combats this problem, ensuring that not all devices are continuously monitored by the security network.
In addition to seeing System Galaxy software in action and learning more about the company’s advanced technologies and access control solutions, visitors to the booth can take their photo alongside Galaxy’s “I’m One” photo wall.
Access Control Software
Galaxy Control Systems’ System Galaxy Access Control Software provides traditional thick client, mobile device applications, and web-based thin client user interfaces on a SQL-based, virtual/host or client/server architecture. The software enables active directory support for real-time identity management, individualised identity-based door access, and audit reports for each screen view or credential holder. Further enhancing System Galaxy are support for third-party video integration, PoE and wireless lock support, and intelligent elevator control. Additionally, the software supports all legacy Galaxy hardware and infrastructure, ensuring customers continue to benefit from their investment in legacy solutions.
